CSS CSS Foundations Advanced Selectors UI Element States Pseudo-Classes

CSS selector problems...

I have been set the following task and seem to be getting it all wrong...

Now, create an attribute selector that targets input elements with a type value of radio. In the same selector, add the :checked pseudo class, then use a combinator to target the label that is an immediate sibling of a radio button. Set the color to blue and the font weight to bold.

My code is here:

input [type="radio"] :checked > label {
     color:blue;
         font-weight: bold;
}

Any help is much appreciated,

  • James

I believe the adjacent (immediately after) sibling selector is a + not a >. The > is a child selector.

There is also no space after the word input and the brackets in the selector .

input[type="radio"]:checked+label {
  color:blue;
  font-weight: bold;
}
